Great 2M HT - Superior Receiver

DX EngineeringDX Engineering Verified Purchase

KWD-TH-K20A
I purchased this handheld primarily because several sources described its receiver as very sensitive. My intended use was not only for 2 meter amateur activity, but also to receive "hot box" detector signals from a 160.XXX MHZ railroad device located several miles from my home, and generally undetected by my Yaesu VX6R. Although I was skeptical, the TH-K20A does detect the signals the VX6R does not; therefore, my opinion of the receiver is very positive. This reception is accomplished with the factory antenna. I tried other antennas from Diamond and Comet with no better result, which I think is remarkable. The HT is simple to program. Not completely intuitive for me, but easy with the manual. The transmitter allows me to reach the same repeaters as my other HTs. The battery charges quickly and holds a charge as expected. I considered ordering the larger capacity battery, but have found that its not needed for my purposes. The display is easy to see, even for my not so young eyes. The buttons are a different story, and I need my reading glasses to see the labels/functions. I highly recommend the TH-K20A.

This is an ideal radio for those of us that don’t want a complex radio. It offers plenty of features that are easily programmed via the keypad, no computer necessary. Solid build, great audio. The TH-K20A has been around a while but still meets most anyone’s need for a two meter rig. DX Engineering ships lightning fast.

Kenwood does it again...

DX EngineeringDX Engineering Verified Purchase

KWD-TH-K20A
I'm a big Kenwood fan to begin with. So that's the first place I looked when I was looking for a handheld 2M radio. This thing is built like a tank and again, the little speaker sounds pretty impressive. Easy to program and get through the settings to set it up for your local repeater.

After many years of using just one specific model of 'HT', I decided to get up-to-date. My usual method to choose a replacement yielded this model of Kenwood due to: a) value vs price b) memory capability and c) size vs weight. I consider this a complete choice ! !
